Anyone think the Orioles might go after Casey Janssen?

As it is right now, I'm almost as interested to see what pitchers from the current roster are NOT going to be with the team by Opening Day as I am to see whether we add anyone else.

You have 12 available spots. Right now you have the 6 starters (Tillman, Gausman, Chen, Gonzalez, Norris, Jimenez). Plus these relievers:

Zach Britton

Darren O'Day

Tommy Hunter

Brad Brach

Ryan Webb

Brian Matusz

Wesley Wright

None of those relievers have options. And that is already 13 guys for 12 spots. Plus you have the 2 Rule 5 guys. Plus McFarland, who you would think is almost guaranteed to start the year at AAA based on the roster construction. I wouldn't be surprised if they move 2 of Matusz/Webb/Hunter. I'm not sure what they'd want in return (especially if they sign Rasmus or Aoki). Maybe a solid back-up C? Or maybe a less proven reliever that can start the year at AAA.

Seems like a better fit for a team that needs an established late inning reliever. I don't see the O's spending closer money on a reliver or we would have made a play for Miller. Probably more of a Webb-type move if anything, and I would prefer lefty since Wright is far from a sure thing.
